Axes? Really?

So, Jedi/Sith will be running around with axes instead of lightsabres come the F2P release. Axes. Do they come with Dwarven beards as well? Can they be upgraded to kitchen knives perhaps?

You say Jedi, I immediately think "ax". It's a natural part of the fantasy, and lore. This is going to be so great.

1. What exactly makes u think that?

2. I think its alright. I mean, I like the idea of moddable vibroblades to rival lightsabers. Axes as weapons do have some small place in star wars lore, and can always be crafted from saber resistant materials...I think its totally viable and I dont think there will be TONS of ppl going out of their way to mod an ax or sword, so ur immersion is prob safe :P

are you by any chance the same guy who complained to me a while back that I'm 'doing it wrong' because my jedi guardian is running around with a vibro sword?

I also thought this was a stupid idea as well. But in the end, I'm putting the blame on any player who actually puts forth the money to buy these for use over the actual developers intent to put them in the game.

Well they do have a place in the Star Wars universe they are Gammorean axes after all, but what a Jedi is doing with them is anybody's guess.

yeah and do you know what is the funny about that? well light sabers can cut through metals but now you can fight a Jedi/Sith with 2 metal Axes against their Light saber lol, go play Lotro ppl at least better looking Axes there.

the worst than that is the THRONE which you can DRIVE!

now would it be kinda stupid for a Jedi/Sith to change his Light sabers with normal AXES? hmmm guess not because the freaking Axes gonna do the same damage as a light saber, WELL DONE BIOWARE!
